"At CREO, employee health is a top priority, and we believe that the best way to treat an injury is to prevent it altogether! That's why all employees are supplied with Vital Boost implants, making the body tougher and more durable than ever before.

Vital Boost Notes & Tips
- The Vital Boost implant is a straight health bonus, which while obviously useful does not actually serve the purpose one would think - it's primary value is in surviving a big hit, so that you can heal and keep going - adding one or two doesn't usually make one especially "tanky", it just decreases the likelihood of being killed by a single hit.
- Stacking Vital Boost and Vital Injector implants is the most common way to prep for killing bosses - if you're good at dodging, you tend not to need energy except for the finishing move on the Black Cerberus or Rogue Process.
